The AWF is now accepting nominations for the 2011 PEAK Awards.  All nominations, including supporting materials, must be submitted by Friday, February 25, 2011.

Please note that the Award categories and selection process have changed this year.   

Five awards will be presented:

  • Lifetime Achievement;
  • Excellence in the Private Sector;
  • Excellence in the Public Sector;
  • Community Legacy; and
  • Rising Star.
  • Award Honourees will be selected from eligible nominees in a closed process by an independent judging panel.  The PEAK Awards will no longer be in an “Oscar style” format.  The five Award Honourees will be announced in early March and individually honoured at PEAK. 

    PEAK 2011 on May 10th, 2011 will feature keynote speaker David Dodge, former Governor of the Bank of Canada, speaking on this year’s theme “In the Black”

    This year's PEAK Awards will be a fabulous evening, during which we will honour the brilliance and achievements of women of the finance community and hold a silent auction to raise money for the AWF PEAK Scholarship Fund.

    Please take the time to nominate a woman you know, who is truly at the PEAK in her financial field.  We look forward to receiving your nomination and to seeing you on May 10th.  Tickets and sponsorship packages for PEAK 2011 will be available in early February.

    For further information regarding the nomination and selection process, please contact AWF Vice President Raewyn Brewer at rbrewer@farris.com.
